'Tis the season when all of the Lickety-Split Savings and Loan customers will be coming in to redeem their Christmas Club savings. Ms. Pennyworth, owner and president of the L.S. Savings and Loan loves to hand the money out personally.
Ms. Pennyworth inherited the bank from a long line of Pennyworth's and manages it in the very same way her father, grandfather and great grandfather did. Please don't plan on using the ATM because there isn't one. No credit cards either. The L.S. Savings and Loan is strictly cash and carry with a strong emphasis on savings.
For each birth announcement made in the local newspaper Ms. Pennyworth sends a piggy bank (with $5 in pennies inside) to the lucky newborn. With this she hopes to establish a long life of savings. She carries pennies from her first bank in her pocket, just to remind herself from whence she came.
The Bank offers very personal service -- as Ms. Pennyworth knows everyone's name and more important exactly how you handle your money. We love her though - as we know she just has our financial interests at heart.
"Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth." - Margaret Thatcher
